    Hi from Leicestershire, UK

    Hi all.

    Reece here from Leicestershire, UK.

    Picked up my Crossrunner today after part ex'ing my CB650F in.

    The bike is a 16MY but only 4 months old and covered 1000 miles.

    Bike is already came with the  following options already fitted;
    - Akrapovic slip on exhaust
    - Honda top box
    - TomTom Sat nav
    - Honda Centre stand

    Already covered 100 miles on it today including the motorway commute to work, so much more comfortable to commute on than the CB650F was.

    Only downside I've noticed so far is the excessive wind noise (even with Auritech ear plugs in) at speed.

    My only other issue (which is personal) is the front indicators being lit as day running lights.

    Look forward to chatting to you all and sharing my experiences.

    Reece.

    Hi, I fitted an Ermax screen and Powerbronze adjustable brackets, cured my wind noise and buffeting issues.  :400: :419:

    Strange regarding the standard screen and wind noise in how it affects various people. Everybody seems to be affected differently.

    I have a Puig extended screen that I find noisy and buffeting, where-as with the standard screen I get no buffeting or wind noise. I notice this immediately the standard screen is fitted for summer but today have refitted the Puig ready for winter so will have to live with the compromise of better protection but more noise (imho).

    Thanks all.

    Regarding the wind noise, I'm 6ft 1" and think the excessive wind noise with standard screen is to do with my height. As if I lower my head a couple of inch the noise pretty much completely goes.

    Also it may also be contributed by my AGV helmet which could be noisy as it lets a fair bit of wind/draft in.
